How to adjust factory alarm?

I have a 2009 WK with factory alarm/remote start.
I was wondering if there is any way to adjust the sensitivity on the alarm?
The reason why i am asking is that this morning, someone backed up into my jeep, leaving a nasty bump on the bumper and chipped paint. I was wondering if there is any way possible to adjust the sensitivity on the factory alarm, so in a case like this (someone bumping my car), the alarm would go off.

Re: How to adjust factory alarm?

no motion sensor on factory alarm. it only monitors door/liftgate/liftglass/hood ajar switches.

Re: How to adjust factory alarm?

You CAN integrate a shock sensor to the stock alarm if you wanted. I just cant seem to find the write up on it for the WK.

Here is a write up for a JK just as a reference:
